Femme Metal Records Calling It Quits, Starting New Entity "Metal Compass"

Carrie Sharp of Femme Metal Records, the sponsor of the Femme Metal Festival, has issued the following announcement about the label being laid to rest and a new entity rising in its place:

"I have decided to lay Femme Metal to rest. There are many reasons for this, the biggest being that I feel Femme Metal has run it's course. I no longer think females in metal need the extra help and support and that by continuing it could in fact hinder rather then help them.

"But that doesn't mean I'm going to quit everything! With Femme Metal no longer running a new agency is being born, this new agency is called Metal Compass. It's an international agency that promotes all hard rock and metal bands (this includes female fronted bands of course!) Metal Compass is an international management, record label and promotions agency. More information will be available in time. There is also a Metal Compass webzine which we are in need of reviewers and interviewers. Please contact me at carrie@metalcompassagency.com for more information.

"Of course with the end of Femme Metal comes the end of the Femme Metal Festival but a new festival will be taking it's place! One that doesn't promote female fronted bands alone. More information on this new festival will be available soon! The Femme Metal Webzine will carry on with Miriam taking over the reigns :)

"All that's left to say is thank you to everyone who helped and supported us over the years! We had a great time and I hope you carry on helping and supporting us in our new project!

"Many thanks."
